"A fresh and moving story of a mother's dedication to acquire a coat for her daughter in post-World War II hard times. Anna's mother decides to trade the few valuables she has left for wool and for the services of a spinner, a weaver, and a tailor. Lobel's pictures do a tremendous job of evoking the period. Insightful and informative, this may make children consider how precious the ordinary can become in times of turmoil."
Our family has adopted 8 sons from Ukraine and will be bringing home 2 more soon. We know many people have a heart toward adoption but are unable to adopt personally. If you are able to help us, it is greatly appreciated! Below is a link to donate and read our whole story. THANK YOU.
